great addition to the neighborhood
Went here for the 50% off special (opening day) but will be returning for full price! Very authentic italian pizza, great topping choices, like the decor (brick wall/cool light fixtures). Hard to judge the service since it was day one but i think this spot will do wonderful in the neighborhood!

The pizzas were delicious, as was the "all-you-can-eat" gnocchi dinner (available on the 29th of each month). Space was nice, airy and bright. Looking forward to returning to their outdoor patio upstairs.

a must try
As a lover of gnocchi and pizza, I've had a lot of it many different places. I can say for certain that Piola's gnocchi and their pizza are both some of the best I've ever had! I also love the location and how they renovated the old building the're in.

Best Pizza in the DMV
Make sure you have the Rio de Janeiro pizza with caipirinha. It is the best. Love the VA place, now I am in love with the D.C. location. For sure, my family and I will keep coming back.

Looks and Tastes Italian
We arrived at Piiola not knowing what to expect from an international chain. We were pleasantly surprised that the pizzas looked and tasted like the better pizzas we ate while traveling in Italy. Pies are nicely cooked, with a crisp crust, and are moderately topped. A regular-sized pizza and a drink made for a satisfying meal. One difference between this branch of Piola and an Italian pizzeria is the sound level: Piola is much louder, thanks to an extremely loud and lively bar whose din carries to the dining room upstairs. Service was responsive and efficient.

Great Pizza and even better service
The food was great, we had a few different pizzas for the table, we enjoyed them all. The service was great as well. Also we had our son (22months old) and is kid friendly too. Can't wait to go back.

Yum! We'll be back!
Excellent pappardelle Bolognese! Husband loved his pizza and appreciated that, unlike most other places where we dined on this weekend trip, Piola actually had his favorite summer ale on tap. This was worth the hike over from our hotel. We look forward to next time.

Delicious thin crust, good balance between sauce and cheese, and great toppings. I am certainly going back!

Bottomless Pizza and Cocktails
Ladies and gentlemen, even if you are not the brunch type, you MUST make reservations for a Saturday or Sunday Bottomless Pizza Brunch at Piola. The cocktails are individually made, the pizza is baked to perfection, and there is plenty of variety from you to switch around and try different drinks and pizza creations. You will not regret this. I will definitely be back!

Our party of three ordered three different pizzas and they all were absolutely delicious. My Italian wife (who every time a new pizzeria opens in DC is eager to try it, quite often leaving disappointed) was amazed by the quality of the dough and the real thin crust (perfect for those who love the Roman style of pizza, not the Neapolitan one). She ordered pizza Como, with porcini mushrooms and prosciutto crudo. The prosciutto is added AFTER the pizza is out from the oven not before, as it should always be done. We are surprised by some negative reviews: we would return again and again, to try them all (except the Honolulu one, which in fact should not be in any Italian menu....!). Upstair is much quiter than downstairs.
